    if someone suggests south africa..are u really going there to buy???

    the cheapest place(by country) is usually the one u are in. unless u r willing to go through the trouble to buy a plane ticket, etc...just for a lens.

    Depends on the lens as well. Some lenses in HK are same/more ex than here. Others are much cheaper. For Nikon, many people say bangkok is cheap.
